Craft in the Bay, Cardiff

3.8
#8 of 15 in Museums in Cardiff
The Craft in the Bay Gallery is an exhibition and craft retail area located at the south end of Lloyd George Avenue, Cardiff Bay. It was designed by the architect Chris Elford.

It is operated by a charitable arts organisation, The Makers Guild in Wales. The gallery is opposite the Wales Millennium Centre and close to the Welsh Assembly Building. The building consists of the relocated and refurbished Grade II listed “D” Shed, previously an industrial warehouse located next to Bute East Dock.

  • A fabulous place to visit. This gallery exhibits beautiful pottery, glass, painting, carved wood and jewellery. Just about everything you can think of and all so lovely look at. There are exhibitions every year from local art students too. You can buy the exhibits and prices range from several hundred to just a few pounds. Definitely food for the soul visiting here; it's fantastic how creative people can be.
  • Another beautiful building in Cardiff bay. There's plenty of rotating exhibitions here, and also a permanent collection of artists work. The gallery is run by guild members, and it's their work that is available in the shop. The works featured are predominately ceramics, but glassware, metalwork, woodwork, fabrics and other media are all featured. Everything is quite expensive however, and the building can get a little too hot in summer sometimes. It tends to act a bit like a greenhouse. Still worth a visit!
